Todays Post: Beds
Because we're all sharing one hotel room, the kids are sleeping on the floor. Some might think this is terrible, but before we moved, our kids slept in the family room on the floor on a regular basis. In fact our 13 year old son, Buster, hasn't slept in his room since his big brother moved out a year ago. So sleeping on the floor is a common thing for our kids.
"I'm sick of sleeping on the floor, I can't wait until I get a real bed again."
"My back hurts. I've been doing too many cart-wheels and sleeping on the floor too long."
"You always get the good hotel pillows, it's not fair. I want the good hotel pillows for a mattress. I want 3 and you can have the one left over."
2 Nights ago: "Let's get all the pillows and blankets and make one huge bed."
Last Night: "I'm not doing that again, you kept kicking me in the head."
Just a note from the Mother: My kids all talk in their sleep and sometimes get rather violent when dreaming. CL and I hear all sorts of crazy sounds in the night! One night Tatty (age 14) cried out, "Mommy, Mommy, help me!" It scared me so bad, I woke up CL and made him go check on her. She was just dreaming.
Notice the little guy on top? Sometimes ya just can't do without a friendly face in a strange place. He belongs to our 15 year old Joka!
I had a little stuffed bear that I slept with until I got married.
Did you have a favorite stuffed animal or blanket when you were growing up?
